the frustrations of so many americans have with washington right now. you're right. this government we have spends too much and wastes too much. it is time to stand up and say enough is enough. that is why the republicans in congress took critical action this week to protect hard-working taxpayers from massive tax hikes. americans are paying more for gas, groceries, and for gas. that is why we made sure the tax cuts passed a decade ago they were made permanent. now we can look forward. speaker boehner says they re-elected a republican majority and we will used to hold the president accountable for the balance approach he promised. that means strengthing programs like social security and medicare and creating a tax code that creates a healthy economy. let's face it, the i.r.s. tax code is a nightmare, it is too complex, too costly, and too unfair. there is something fundamental wrong when roughly 60% of hardworking taxpayers have to hire a professional to do their taxes. you should not need an army of lawyerers to understand our tax code. that's what we have to do start to work on real solutions to

an american legacy to it. several people said that if i come out here and talk about george washington, which a lot of people seems a long way off, both of the books became a "new york times" bestseller. it is actually about the 13 colonies. her mother broke her and said you should not say this is for four to eight years old. this is for four years old to 80 years old. nobody has said he the colonies, so it's brand-new information for everybody. and then she said, okay, but what you should really do in order to engage washington and the national media is applied to the fiscal cliff. i thought to myself, at the reagan library, what better place to go back to first principles. since i have written three novels about george washington, why not leave these two giants, ronald reagan after whom the soviet empire disappeared and george washington. after whom we became a country. i don't study history because it's an interesting habit. i study history to better understand the present and the future so that i can engage in making history by being an intelligent and informed person. that's what citizen

-- washington must cut out of control spending. i agree. the american people are right to expect more accountability from their government. i recently saw a poll that three out of four americans support spending cuts across the boards. these hard-working taxpayers are tired of petty battles. they are frustrated with the lack of progress in their elected leaders. in 2009, the president pledged to cut the annual deficit in half but the end of his first term. instead, we have seen four straight years of trillion dollar deficits and national debt exceeding $16 trillion. rather than cutting waste list spending, the federal government added $4 billion each day to our gross national debt. this path is not sustainable. i support a more limited government that is focused on fulfilling its court duties and responsibilities. only then can we identified the national priorities were the of taxpayer funding. the constitution clearly states that the top right your the for congress is to provide for the common defense. despite this duty, nearly one trillion dollars in critical national security fundi
for his children's children, and unfortunately washington is taking our children's inheritance, and federal spending is taking families down. it is time for democrats and republicans to work together to create a plan to get our nation and families back on track. every family and every business has a budget. our nation should have a budget as well. every year the president is required to submit a budget proposal by february 4. the obama administration has already informed congress that for the fourth time in five years it will be late for a budget to your representatives. unfortunately, the president has missed more budget deadlines than any of his predecessors. the house and senate are required to submit a law each year april 15. the democratic run senate has not approved such a resolution it almost four years -- 1361 days to be exact. this is not the result of washington gridlock. majority leader harry reid said it would be foolish for his party in the senate to produce a budget. we disagree. what more than $16 -- more than 16 trillion dollars in debt, we believe it is foolish

washington. pretty much everything that could be written about those two probably has been written. the greatest historians has been years poring through the letters and the evidence to produce this book on lincoln or this book in the hundreds of books on washington. some might thought was, eureka. why not look at the person that the best among the first lady. because historians have largely ignored the role of the first lady, as they have largely ignored the role of mistresses and shipping the man. a lot of my colleagues tend to be older man, educated in a certain way that did not study such matters. most historians were not educated in matters of a heart or the hearth. therefore they ignore that. it is on cannon's crowds of kings. so by studying the first lady, for example, the first thing thomas jefferson did after spending 17 days cooped up in eight lost outside of philadelphia writing the declaration of independence, the first thing he does go shopping. he went shopping for martha, his wife. mr. she was preggers. she had had a miscarriage. he mr., and he bought her some cl
